The Post

Faculty Reps are a vital link between students, Course Reps, Students’ Union and University staff. The successful candidate will work closely with Course Reps in their faculty to identify the most common issues and areas of best practice, which they will then put forward at Faculty meetings and other senior level meetings. They will ensure that the views and opinions they put forward are representative of the students within their faculty and will work closely with the University to ensure that student feedback is acted upon. A Faculty Rep also oversees the Course Rep system on a faculty level and they support and motivate Course Reps and Student Voice Committee Chairs in their role. They are also members of their respective Faculty Network, where Course Reps meet to discuss current issues within the Faculty and share best practice. Faculty Reps are a part of the Union Actioning Body committee/Student Council, which is the primary decision making body for all UPSU campaigns and democratic matters and the successful candidate will work particularly closely with fellow UAB/Student Council members and the Academic Representation Officer.

The Person

We are looking for a confident and outgoing person in the Faculty of Technology with a passion for representing the views of the students within their Faculty to ensure ideas, opinions and voices are heard. Excellent communication and meeting skills are an advantage, but there will be opportunities for training to further improve these skills. We particularly welcome applications from students with previous experience of being a student representative, such as a Course Rep, and who understand the importance of academic representation within the University.

You must be a current student at the University of Portsmouth in the academic year 2020-21 and must be studying on a course within the Faculty Technology

What’s in it for you?

  • You will have the chance to represent and positively affect students like you
  • You will develop many transferable skills such as negotiation, effective communication, leadership, the ability to present, coordinating others
  • You will have access to regular training sessions to develop and improve your skills
  • You will have the opportunity to meet students from across the University
  • You will have access to a range of diverse professional networks, which means you are able to gain knowledge or scope out opportunities for the next step in your career progression
